Some auto parts stores rent tools which you will need. A ball joint press is what you need to press them out

81 Mercury Cougar Ball joint replacement.


Remove the cotter pin.
Loosen the nut most of the way, but do not remove the nut.
Use a ball joint remover, strike the tool until the ball joint separates from the frame.
Remove the nut, and drop the ball joint assembly.
Tape the threaded area of the steering side, so you can replace the new ball joint in the approximate area.
Unscrew the ball joint.
Reverse for install.

Then have your alignment done.

How to fix a ball joint in a ford tempo


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The lower ball joint is integral to the lower control assembly and cannot be serviced individually. Any movement of the lower ball joint detected as a result of inspection requires replacement of the lower control arm assembly.
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove the nut and bolt securing the ball joint to the steering knuckle.
  4. Remove the nut and bolt securing the control arm to the vehicle sub frame. To install:
  5. Install the control arm assembly to the vehicle sub-frame using the nut and bolt. Tighten the nut to 69-86 ft. lbs. (93-117 Nm).
  6. Install the lower ball joint into the steering knuckle and secure it with the nut and bolt. Tighten the nut to 32-43 ft. lbs. (43-59 Nm).
  7. Install the wheel and tire assembly and lower the vehicle.
  8. Road test the vehicle.

How to change lower ball joint on 95 mercury cougar...do you have to take lower countrol arm off to get ball joint out?


i would replace the whole control arm because the bushing are probably worn out too and it's easier than pressing out the ball joints. make sure you have a spring compressor tool when you do this or you could get seriously injured

1997 mercury cougar pulls to the left when braking. i put on new tires new brake new rotors, and new calipers. thank you, tim


this car needs the lower ball joints checked for excessive play, when pressing the brake pedal the excess play is transferred to the weakest point. the ball joint can be pressed out of the lower control arm or purchased new as a new control arm.
